In his spare time, Dr. Mark Wichman enjoys outdoor activities, including wind-surfing, camping, and fishing; he is also a PADI-certified scuba diver.

The Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) focuses its certification program on developing divers’ skills in stages, allowing them to advance at their own pace. PADI certification is the stepping stone to Open Water Diver certification. Training to be a PADI-certified scuba diver consists of online educational development as well as confined and open water dives.

Once certified, a PADI scuba diver is competent to conduct supervised dives of up to 40 feet, accompanied by a PADI professional; lease or buy equipment to participate in supervised dives; and work towards the achievement of Open Water Diver certification. PADI certification is available through over 6,300 PADI dive centers around the world.
